Show text over image or export background image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    I have a report that needs a footer. In the footer there is an image and I have too put some text information on top of the image. I can't seem te get it to work, the text fields are moved underneath the image.

    When I put the image in the footer as a background image of the footer then I can place text over it. But then when I export the report to Word the background images is not exported.

    I've tried putting the image and the textbox inside a rectangle but that doesn't help as well. The text in the text box moves down so it's below the image. 

    I will attach two images to show what we do:

    Image 1: Report design of the page footer - everything is in the footer and in a rectangle

    Image 2: The result of the footer in the report viewer

    As you can see the text "test" has moved down to go below the image.

    We use the ReportViewer from Visual Studio 2010 and the LocalReport option instead of the full Reporting Services. .Net version of our application is 3.5. Version of the reportviewer is 10.0

    Anybody? Help would be appreciated!

    Cheers Patrick
